    US Soccer Chief Quits Over Legal Dispute

    Carlos Cordeiro has stepped down as U.S. Soccer Federation president after a bombshell court filing this week deeply disparaged the women's national team. As part of its defense in a gender discrimination suit brought by the female players, the organization argued that it's "indisputable science" that they're less talented than their male counterparts. Cordeiro claimed he hadn't reviewed the document's language, and said he "would have objected" to it.
